Dear CAT Community,

We’re in the middle of April and Earth Day is near! 🌏 
This year we want to capture some of your actions & wins. 💚🏆 With your permission we’ll tweet & post on LinkedIn about them during Earth Week (19-23 Apr) but you can also simply add your action and stay anonymous or add it to just share within the community.
💪 Add your action(s) / win(s) here

We’re also capturing some 📅 events happening this month. If you’re hosting an event or participating in one, add it to the “Calendar” tab of the spreadsheet.

For more action prompts over the next few months, join our #action channel! 💥
Today's action is to sign the 1in5for1point5 petition Through this petition you can ask Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Microsoft to lobby for climate in 2021. If you’re an employee for any of these companies, you can sign as a “tech employee” — otherwise you can toggle to “general public” and sign there.

Remember you can unsubscribe from this newsletter at any time.

Stay safe & healthy 😌 💚 🐱

How the adoption of reused and remanufactured tech can turn the tide on e-waste
📅 Tues 20th April, 12.30pm to 1.30pm (BST)
Green Tech South West welcomes Anthony Levy and Louise Whitaker from Cistor, to talk us through what using remanufactured and refurbished ICT actually means. Anthony and Louise will discuss their experience of deploying reused and remanufactured technology in critical situations such as hospitals, aircraft carriers, stock exchanges and banks. Drawing on real examples from their own industry, and parallel industries such as the automotive sector, they’ll share concrete lessons on how we can break down the barriers to reusing existing hardware (or hardware technology).
